This view looks to the West End of
Princes Street from the north-west.
Maule's Department Store, later to become Binns, then
Fraser's store, is on the left. The clock has not yet
been added to this store.
The clock in the centre of the street in
front of St John's Church has now gone, as the road layout has
changed more than once to help the traffic to flow.
In the centre of the view on the blue
postcard above are
Cuthbert's Church, with Edinburgh
just visible on Castle Hill in the background.
On the right-hand side of the picture is
the site of Princes Street Station, with the Caledonian Hotel
